CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – Former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar believes he has been removed as a TV commentator for Cleveland’s preseason games because of slurred speech he attributes to concussions sustained in the NFL.

The Browns announced Wednesday that Kosar is being replaced by Solomon Wilcots. The team says it is exploring other media roles for Kosar, who remains one of the Browns’ most popular players.

Kosar says in a statement his removal “stems from my slurred speech impairment, which is a direct result of the many concussions I received while playing in the NFL.”

Kosar calls the situation “unfortunate” and says doing the preseason games is “truly one of the remaining joys in my life.”
